I'm currently trying to sell me 2001 330Ci to possibly purchase a 2003 Audi 1.8T Q this coming fall. My plan would be to also purchase a CooperS as my fun car (2nd car). Maybe I'll just purchase the CooperS and pocket the rest of the money.
of course it's going to be the S. You can't have fun in the A4 as you will in the MINI. If price is not an issue, buy two and tell those that can't fit in your MINI to drive the other one. double the fun
The question posed is, in itself, not really a question at all... However my ideal car to sit alongside the Cooper S, thinking practically here, may well be an Audi... The Allroad, in fact. This would be a business class upgrade to our current (& very good) Subaru Outback
The Scooby is a nice metallic red, BTW - Would look good on a MINI... Nicer than the root beer Velvet Red
